Do I qualify for funded hours?

You, and any partner, must each expect to earn (on average) the equivalent of working 16 hours a week at your national minimum wage (£125 at the National Living Wage, less if you are on the National Minimum Wage).

If you, or your partner, are on maternity, paternity or adoption leave, or you’re unable to work because you are disabled or have caring responsibilities, you could still be eligible.

You do not qualify for 30 hours free childcare if you, or your partner, expect to earn £100,000 or more.

Your child can start in their childcare place the term after they turn 3 years old and have received a valid 30 hours code, whichever is later.

Term start dates are 1st September, 1stJanuary and 1st April.

To keep your 30 hours free childcare place, you need to check your details are up to date every 3 months.

Taking a funded place does not cover the costs of meals, other consumables, additional hours or additional activities (such as trips). We do charge a fee for these additions.
